The open poppy design has been stamped and embossed with a gold tinsel powder on to blotting paper. Shimmering Mists were then applied with a paint brush.

Both the open and solid stamps have been embossed with Stampendous Aged Scarlet powder. The centre then coloured with black ink...a mistake I think!

The solid poppy design was then stamped with the gold ink around the edge of the paper.
